Laughs abound when a no-nonsense LAPD detective (Academy Award-winner Robert De Niro - "The Good Shepard," "City by the Sea") is forced to star in a reality-based television show with a showboating patrolman and frustrated wannabe-actor (Academy Award and Golden Globe-nominee Eddie Murphy - "Dreamgirls," "Norbit") in an effort to boost the department's public image and morale. They soon find their lives turned upside-down by the show's powerhouse producer (Rene Russo -- "The Thomas Crown Affair," "Lethal Weapon" 3 and 4) and her very intrusive camera crew! Also starring Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winner William Shatner (TV's "Boston Legal," "Miss Congeniality") and Alex Borstein ("Good Night, and Good Luck," "Catwoman").

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: De Niro looks bored, Murphy recycles Murphy, and you mentally add Showtime to the pile of Hollywood dreck that represents nothing more than the art of the deal.
Rotten: ... Showtime isn't much of a show at all.
Rotten: 90 punitive minutes of eardrum-dicing gunplay, screeching-metal smashups, and flaccid odd-couple sniping.
Rotten: The thinness of the conception gives the actors so little room to maneuver that they turn in uniformly one-note performances.
Great comedy and great casts.
